Love your neighbor here, on earth, before you
export your love to heaven
It is time to start showing real love to each other
It is time to stop exporting love to heaven when we have not loved here on earth
We were raised with a lot of errors
For centuries one of the things that kept Africa backward is the fact that we do not question conventional knowledge
We do not question conventional wisdom
The words of someone who is two days older than you is considered authoritative simply because they are older.
We are used to hearing statements like “we’ve been doing it that way, what do you know?”
There was a time when some things were considered wrong, but they later became right because some bold people fought against the system
What we had as conventional wisdom in the 14th century, by the 18th century it had been overthrown by new development in technology and ideology
With religion, there is no new development.
We are not getting new scriptures
The scriptures are the same and have not changed.
However understanding them and reading them is evolving
People are beginning to see that these things have always been in the scriptures
But because we have to listen to people who are older than us, people we consider as more knowledgeable than us, at the end of the day, we have stagnated our belief system, and we have put as priority what others taught us
We need to assign value to whom value is due
We have to put love above all things.
To inherit the kingdom is love. So why put the kingdom before love?
The kingdom is a byproduct-of love and not the other way around
The Pharisees and Christ never agreed on anything. This is one of the first instances where they both agreed
Nothing mattered but compassion
Christ did not tell him to go and fast, sow a seed or look for a father in the lord!
Christ simply told him to show mercy
If you don’t know how to show love and mercy, don’t join the prayer group. Your prayers will be useless
1 Corinthians 13:1
Sadly many pastors put you through the byproduct mentality.
They have you chasing after heaven, prayer, money and fasting instead of chasing after love
Colossians 2:20 tell us that all these teachings are based on human understanding and will expire as we use them
There is a curse upon those who have refused to take care of the needy
Many Pentecostal pastors are living their heaven here on earth and you are paying for it
1 Corinthians 13:1
Revelation and prophesy are partial but love is whole and complete. Love lasts for ever
Faith, Hope and Love will last for ever and the greatest is love
1 John 4:20
Loving your neighbor is the most important because if you don’t love your neighbor that you see, how can you love God whom you have not seen
When you love, no demon can come near you
We need to understand the concept of salvation, heaven, God and Love
Pastors who tell you to pray for your enemies to die are lying to you
Love your neighbor and pray for your enemies
This is proof that Christ existed
Once you learn to love and obey God, heaven comes for free
1 Timothy 6:1-6
Godliness with content is great gain
1 Timothy 10:3
Teach and insist on these teachings
You are a slave when you listen to and obey anyone teaching you false doctrine
People who are eager for money wander from the faith
When the church makes you eager for money it is not the house of God
You sow seeds and pay tithes because you are believing you will gain money
1 Timothy 6:17
Teach those who are rich in this world. This means not everyone in this world will be rich. But no matter what, their trust should be in God
Don’t bow to the false doctrine of the world
An adulterous generation looking for signs and wonders are quick to call other men gods
When pastors tell you to bring your sacrifice they are telling you to do what Paul was fighting against
1 Samuel 9:7
In the Old Testament a lot of men were called men of God.
Today we know we are the living stones. We are greater than all the men of God from the Old Testament
There was one offering and one sacrifice. Christ
The most important thing is love. Love is greater than any gift.
